Dr Ugur Guven and his students launched their mid sized weather balloon to roughly 40 km of altitude to test their payloads and their instruments. We picked a field that was roughly 70 km west of the location that we recovered the payload. There were several international students at the launch site. Weather Balloon Project at High Altitude Test Flight was a success as we were able to recover the scientific payload and we are also able to download the data. Dr. Ugur Guven and students will continue the weather balloon flights in the future.
